There is a prize of £200 and the 5 best ideas will have the opportunity to work with a graphic designer to design a poster which promotes their product. The posters will then be posted on Instagram where the winner will be chosen by popular vote. 

The winner will be announced at the Work for Yourself Fair on 10 March and details will be posted here.
